February 2021 RubyGems Updates

Welcome to the RubyGems monthly update! As part of our efforts at Ruby Together, we publish a recap of the work that we’ve done the previous month. Read on to find out what updates were made to RubyGems and in February.

RubyGems News

This month on RubyGems, we worked on fixing an issue about source priority that received attention due to a popular blog post. In particular, the lockfile now has separated RubyGems sources, limiting the issue to fresh installs without a lockfile and allowing for a workaround in the other cases (running bundle lock and reviewing the result before installing).

In February, RubyGems gained 114 new commits, contributed by 12 authors. There were 743 additions and 204 deletions across 56 files. News

This month on, we reduced the ngix rate limit to mitigate the load on Postgres - #2634 and evaluated the impact of reducing random_page_post in Postgres config.

In addition to that, we made the following improvement and fixes:

  • updated Elasticsearch to v6.8.
  • setup notifications for AWS health events.
  • updated script to block a user from resetting API keys - #2647
  • reduced font size of title and subtitle on reverse dep page - #2637
  • enabled safe-site lax cookie policy - #2638
  • enabled return_only_media_type_on_content_type rails 6.0 default - #2639
  • thanks to simi, we significantly improved the delay in our build time by migrating from Travis to Github Actions. - #2626.

In February, RubyGems gained 52 new commits, contributed by 3 authors. There were 249 additions and 168 deletions across 23 files.

As always, we continue to fix bugs, review and merge PR’s and reply to support tickets.
